metro tunnel

Bidders are being sought to build four tunnel boring machines to drive the 9km long twin bore Melbourne Metro Tunnel.

The Victoria government has said that it expects the machines to be operational in 2019 and for the new underground rail system to be operational by 2026.

The tunnel drives for the new underground will start from sites at Arden and Domain and will operate at up to 40m below street level.
